Acoustic Jazz with a Funk Flavour Flirting Shyly with Motown Soul
MichelIe has more than 20 years of performing experience both in Australia and abroad and continues to endear audiences with her on stage candour and charm. Think Jazz & Soul with a hint of Pop.
Michelle's original songs coupled with some classic soul and jazz covers will take you to the outskirts of New Orleans with a fleeting visit to Motown. A far cry from the farming belt of Central Victoria where Michelle grew up. Being the daughter of a self taught traditional jazz musician, it was inevitable that the joy and energy of jazz would infect her music. She will be accompanied with the stylish sax chops of Emelia Wilmot, who is no stranger to the trad jazz festival circuit. Michelle's vocals are beguiling with tones that traverse the sensual. Lyrically candid, the songs are spiced with poetic nuance with sparks of cunning wit exploring the follies of humanity. A Night on Frenchmen Street is the latest album release; following up to her debut album 'I Almost Forgot'.
